Hi all, I'm getting ready to buy my first radio. Since I really don't want to deal with an external antenna, I decided to buy a handheld. I want a radio I can grow into, and was looking at the Yaesu VX-8DR. What are your thoughts on this radio for a first time buyer. Does it really sound that bad on receive. We seem to have a lot of repeaters here in Orlando, so I'm hoping it will work out ok. I know I'll never be able to talk to the world on it, but l'm ok with that.
